No. 6 - Four Letters to European Parliament

Dear Mr. Martin Schulz,  President of European Parliament  
Willy-Brandt-Ring 1    D-52477 Alsdorf
Deutschland – Niemcy

With great amazement and indignation I have read your opinion about the "coup" in Poland. I really know my country better than you. I have lived in my homeland for 70 years already. I assure you that the elections  for the President and the new government in Poland are not evidence of an absence of democracy.

The elections showed that most ordinary citizens of my country want change. The problem is that those, who hitherto had authority to govern, on this decision lost. Therefore, they do not want to surrender to the verdict of the election, and use for their interests the European Parliament. Under your leadership, Parliament is certainly busy with very important issues, including the length of a candle's flame and the amount of water in a toilet’s tank.

There are no politicians today in Brussels with class, or people looking for the common good of the societies making up the European Union. Political correctness coupled with pettiness is not conducive to wisdom.
It is a pity, as Mr. Chirac once said, that you also “lost the opportunity to keep quiet".

I know that you will not change your position and will not apologize to Poles. Greatness is required to recognize one’s own mistake. Therefore, at the "winter holidays" (as you call Christmas),
I wish you prudence, wisdom and imagination.

Open Letter to Members of the European Parliament

Response to Attacks on Democratically Elected Polish President and Parliament

The Polish American Congress, Long Island Division is increasingly concerned with the false accusations directed at the recent, democratically elected, Polish government.

In the past foreign powers interfered in Poland’s internal affairs and its sovereignty which resulted
in Poland being partitioned by Austria, Prussia and Russia. Also, the alliance of Germany and Russia encouraged Hitler to attack Poland and begin WWII. More recently, the Yalta Agreement
between Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin enslaved Central Europe, including East Germany.

The European Union did not react to the Russian-German Nord Stream II gas pipeline agreement
that violated European solidarity. Also ignored is the tragic migration crisis.
But, interference in Poland’s internal affairs is being considered.

Poland's internal reforms are OUTSIDE THE SCOPE of EU law, and fall under its observance of national interests and are within the existing constitutional framework. The internal reforms are necessitated by years of corrupt rule of the previous government and the post communist oligarchy.

Mass media allegations against Poland are orchestrated by those interested in manipulating
public opinion to sustain a neo-colonial status of Poland.  

We hope the January 13 and 19 European Commission and European Parliament meetings
openly debate “the political situation” in Poland and result in a cessation of attacks on
 the democratically elected Polish President and Parliament.

Grzegorz Worwa,  President, Polish American Congress, Long Island, New York Division

Dear President Juncker,
In recent weeks there has been much negative publicity and conflicting messages concerning Poland, its government and decision making practices. The recent actions by the European Commission (EC) regarding Poland contributed to the discussions and debate that take place both in Poland as well as outside her borders among the members of Polish communities worldwide, including the United States,
where the Polish American diaspora is approximately ten million.

The Polish American Congress, founded in 1944, is the largest Polish American organization.
 Many of our members closely follow the situation in Poland.

 Since the announcement of the discussion on Poland by the European Commission our organization has been inundated with messages expressing great distress among members of our organization and the Polish American community in general. It’s unfortunate that the debate on Poland and associated negative publicity has escalated to this magnitude on an international level causing harm to the good image of Poland.

We understand, the European Commission is concerned about Poland because of political and administrative actions undertaken by the newly-elected Polish President and Parliament. We also understand that Poland agreed to a possibility of such action while signing the documents of accession to the European Union; however, we question if such a strong approach was necessary.

Regrettably, the unprecedented steps by the Commission regarding Poland have provoked a great degree of anxiety and worry that Poland has been singled out for this type of measures. Furthermore, it provides additional arguments for Euro-skeptics. The internal political and social agitation that currently takes place in Poland around EC's decisions fuels the agendas of those who do not have Poland's best interest at heart, including one of Poland's neighbors - Russia.

Nonetheless, and in response to the great concern among the members of the Polish American community, we urge you, Mr. President, as well as other members of the Commission, to thoroughly and objectively review the facts of the situation in Poland and take under careful consideration all of its aspects including political, legislative and those of a historical, social, and cultural nature.

We are confident that Beata Szydlo, Poland's Prime Minister, and her staff will be able to resolve
matters in question in an amicable and equitable manner.

It is in the best interest of all concerned that Poland remains a politically and economically strong
member of the European Union.

I hope this matter gets resolved in the very near future for the benefit of all: Poland,
the European community, as well as Polish communities worldwide.

Sincerely yours,

Frank J. Spula,
PAC President

No. 5. The year 2016 – A hope for Poland

  1. The year 2016 – A hope for Poland
(original title: Year 2016 is a hope for liberation from occupation of  “the round table”
- author unknown, shortcuts and translation by Zbyszek Koralewski)

In 1989, once again we managed to rescue a criminal system and the people who created it. This time under the guise of "democracy" and "capitalism" a compromised system was created in which communism took over the Capital and Democracy was partitioned between selected opposition and
the communist apparatus. (former communists were never brought to justice – zk)

Effect of the reforms by comrade Balcerowicz, who since 1969 belonged to the Communist Party, and in the years 1978-1980 worked on problems of the socialist market-oriented economy - it is unusual on
a European scale: impoverishment of the majority of society, while the beneficiaries of the system have become the creators of the Third Republic.

Poland for 25 years, so-called "Freedom" has divested as part of the privatization of their own industry, their own banks, retail chains and processing establishments creating an army of unemployed, with more than 3 million people leaving Poland in search of bread and better prospects for life.

After 25 years, the Poles - like under communism earned a pittance - for the most part, not only have not received anything from this "favorable" privatization - but have become slaves in western corporations, often working in addition on "junk" agreements and therefore not entitled to pensions, vacations, and sick days.

"Handelsblatt", a leading German daily business paper does not make a secret that European expansion (mainly German) in Poland was made possible by the neo-liberal government which in fact realized building a neocolonial - theoretical state.

"The prime minister of the government, Donald Tusk, was "as if in gratitude for this" awarded the position of President of the European Council," - says the "Handelsblatt".

Merkel and German politicians will do anything not to lose Poland, as its sphere of influence, where it pulled a lot of profits. According to a recent report by Global Financial Integrity, it is estimated that in recent years companies of our western neighbor "sucked" out of our country $30 billion! It turns out that annually as much as 5 percent of Polish GDP goes abroad, i.e. approximately 90 billion zl. For comparison, an annual need, for the program 500 zł per child, is approximately 17 billion zl.
Shame that some important and well-known opposition individuals, about which – paradoxically – already warned Orwell in "Animal Farm" joined a group of Polish traitors, Gazeta Wyborcza,
agents SB, WSI, obliging journalists.

Most of the former dissidents who fought for a free Poland, however did not sell themselves –
they are people excommunicated, which had to be forgotten, as it was attempted to do with
Anna Walentynowicz. From others they attempted to make idiots and lunatics.

The year 2016 is the hope for (reforms and –zk) liberation from "progress" that is exported from
the European Union and neo-colonialism especially from Germany, in defense of the faith, heritage, tradition, culture, economy, history and truth, that was manipulated and sold.
Contratack of Beata Szydlo on Targowiczan in Polish Sejm:

(Professor Radosław Zenderowski:  Elites of Central and Eastern countries so far largely have been oriented to the West and were not able to represent the national interest in a way in which do the Germans, the French or the British.)

  1. Criticism of new government
 synopsis by Zbyszek Koralewski from “Polish Democracy is in Fine Health”.  By Matthew Tyrmand & the Editorial Staff of Gazeta Polska Codziennie

The mainstream western press apparatus, taking its cues from the Polish mainstream press (which is 80% owned by Germans –zk) and those connected to the government freshly ejected from office, continues to criticize the recently democratically elected new government (not in charge because of
the "fascist coup" as depicted by some western officials, like e.g.: Mr. Martin Schulz, President of European Parliament - zk).

Western press suggests that the democracy is being violated in Poland today and censorship abounds under the new regime. This is an outright lie as both pro- and anti-government protests have occurred unencumbered (since the last election –zk).  However, during the past eight years during the ruling years of the Civic Platform and the Polish People's Party (PO-PSL), democratic ideals were NOT upheld and that the right to protest, express oneself freely without fear of reprisal, and other civil liberties were frequently abrogated (surprisingly there was no criticism then - zk).  Examples:
  • Independent journalists were repeatedly harassed by the security agencies. The staff of,                among others, Gazeta Polska Codziennie (GPC) had their homes searched. 
  • In December 2014, two journalists (Tomasz Gzela of the Polish Press Agency and Jan Pawlicki of Telewizja Republika) were arrested. They were covering the protest held at the headquarters of the National Electoral Commission after the local elections.  PSL having received well more votes than expected (by a factor of 10) in a region (Gdynia) where they have had little historical support.  They managed to gain just enough votes to enable them to remain the junior governing partner of PO. The election results were most likely falsified and this was not investigated.
  • Journalists were dismissed from their posts when they pushed for a transparent investigation into the Smolensk crash. Tomasz Sakiewicz and Anita Gargas, among others,  lost their jobs in the public media. Cezary Gmyz was dismissed from the editorial staff of Rzeczpospolita (a daily paper partially owned by the state) for publishing information  indicating that there were traces of TNT found on the wreck of the plane that crashed in  Smolensk in April 2010.
               This information was later confirmed by the experts.

In May 2015, after the Presidential election was lost by President Bronisław Komorowski, the PO-PSL coalition violated the constitution and appointed new members of the Constitutional Tribunal before the justices' terms expired. Today, after the reforms implemented by the democratically elected Law and Justice Party, the judges elected by the Civic Platform still constitute the majority. They occupy 9 of 15 seats in the Tribunal. It was no secret that the Tribunal in its current form was largely a rubber stamp on the previous government's lawlessness. (The Tribunal was formed in communist times in 1986). 

Breaking civil liberties went unreported by a pliant media that was directly and indirectly on the previous government's or foreigners’ payroll. These encompassed every sort of corrupt behavior from accepting bribes to patronage jobs and contracts going to friends and family members, to bogus un-bid non-competitive contract procurement, to self-dealing, the awarding of bonuses and pensions, to preferential tax treatment for allies and supporters (including foreign multi-national corporations). 

(Today, a very pro-American Polish Government is in power, and has started a purge of corrupt upper level civil servants.  Too many dark interest groups, including both German and Russian geopoliticians, both of whom are opposed to American strongholds in East Central Europe, are threatened by Poland's new government.  This explains why there is a huge uproar and a continuing stream of lies and false accusations appearing in the mainstream mass media which are orchestrated mainly by Germany and are designed to discredit and disqualify opinion Poland's truly democratic government.
